Cookie Policy

Shure uses cookies to improve performance and enhance the user experience for those who visit our website. This policy clarifies how we do this and how cookies are managed.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you visit a site or page in order to for example provide shopping functionality, help analyse the website’s performance and to recommend content relevant to your visit. Cookies are stored in your browser. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. Most cookies won’t collect information that identifies you as a person (personal data), and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our websites. Cookies may be used to create a profile of the user's activities in the Internet. You can find further information about this in our Privacy Policy (at sections 6 to 8)

Types of cookies

First party cookies

First party cookies are set by the website, you are visiting and they can only be read by that site.

Third party cookies

Third party cookies are set by a different organisation to the owner of the website you are visiting. For example, the website might use a third party analytics company who will set their own cookie to perform this service.

The website you are visiting may also contain content embedded from, for example YouTube or Google Maps, and these sites may set their own cookies.

Session cookies

Session Cookies are stored only temporarily during a browsing session and are deleted from the user’s device when the browser is closed.

Persistent cookies

This type of cookie is saved on your computer for a fixed period (usually a year or longer) and is not deleted when the browser is closed.

Persistent cookies are used where we need to know who you are for more than one browsing session.

Categories of Cookies

The different types of cookies set out above can be categorized as follows:

Strictly Necessary Cookies:

These are cookies that are required for the website to operate properly. They allow us to provide services pursuant to your express requests such as account access and shopping cart & checkout functionality. If these are deactivated, a user will not be able to use these services.

Performance Cookies:

These cookies collect information about how users use a website, for instance which pages users go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. Website analytics are based on performance cookies.

These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a user. It is only used to improve how a website works.

Functionality Cookies:

These cookies enhance the use of a website. These cookies can, for example, be used to remember the changes a user has made to text size, fonts, language, currency and other parts of webpages that are customisable.

These cookies may also be used to provide services such as Social Sharing. Buttons and widgets provided by social network services and other third parties commonly set cookies which enable users to post links to, ‘Like’ or comment on a site through their social networks. These cookies also allow the network operator to identify the user and store information about the usage of the website by the user in his/her profile. For further information on this, please see our Privacy Policy (at section 8).

Targeting/Advertising Cookies:

These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign and to monitor from which advertising source a user was directed towards our website so that we know whether it is worth us investing in that particular advertising source. They may also remember that the website has been visited from a device and share that information with marketing organisations.

These cookies also allow the network operator to identify the user and store information about the usage of the website by the user in his/her profile.For further information on this, please see our Privacy Policy (at section 8).
